Hmmmm it's a diesel to state the obvious and it's sitting in a scrap yard by the looks of it. Don't think there will be any takers, especially at that price! :scared

I agree - the price is very steep. Especially as it clearly has rusty arches (certainly n/s rear) and MOT history shows lots of corrosion issues.

I'd have put money on it being a "Working" car as well based on the items in the background.

Yes, that's what I thought too, when I took a look at this. It's been for sale for a while as well and the seller is convinced it's worth the money because of the rarity and the last one they either sold (or saw being sold) went for almost 1k. Thing is, I have a Rover that is as old as this with only 20k miles less on the clock and has really been neglected (to my eternal shame) but has never needed welding to anywhere but the rear of the sills and real wheel arches. Why this has needed welding to just about every suspension mounting point on the car, I can't understand, unless someone was making money off the old owner.

Now being sold for spares or repair as the vehicle has been vandalised - all the windows broken. Shame, but maybe if they had not demanded so much for it in the first place (with no MoT, clutch failed, all the previous welding issues), someone might have bought it in time to prevent the vandal damage.
